PRESS RELEASE
Martin Barré\;
Works by Martin Barré\;
May 3rd through June 7th

 \;
Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of selected works by Mar tin Barré\; organized by Thea Westreich and Ethan Wagner.

Martin Barré\;&rsquo\;s career spanned much of the latter half of the 20th century. He emerged on the Paris scene in the mid-1950s and died in 1 993\, at the age of 69. During his lifetime\, museums and galleries across Europe regularly exhibited his work.

Barré\; effectively t ranscended the time when the ideals of modernism gave way to the new spirit of contemporary art. Barré\;&rsquo\;s inventive and sensitive explor ation of line\, color and form\, and the two-dimensional surface is conside red to be a singular achievement in the history of abstract painting.

In recent years\, Barré\; has received increased international attention. In 2006\, the Centre Pompidou hung three of its collection of Ba rré\; paintings in one of its permanent galleries\, along with works by Carl Andre\, Agnes Martin\, and Robert Ryman. In its 2001 show\, As Pain ting: Division and Displacement\, the Wexner Center for the Arts exhibited Martin Barré\;&rsquo\;s paintings with works by Daniel Buren\, Donald Judd\, Gerhard Richter\, Robert Ryman and Jacques Villeglé\;.
< br />The May 2008 exhibition\, Works by Martin Barré\;\, at the Andre w Kreps Gallery occasions the publication of the most extensive and complet e monograph on Barré\; yet in print. The 288-page cloth-bound\, hardc over book includes 180 full-page color reproductions\, and features Yve-Ala in Bois&rsquo\;s defining essay on Barré\;\, published for the first time in English. And it contains three interviews\, two by Catherine Millet and the third by Jean Clay.

The exhibition will be on view from May 3rd through June 7th. A reception will be held at the gallery on May 3 rd from 6 - 8 PM at 525 West 22nd Street\, New York. For more information c ontact Erin Somerville at 212.741.8849\, or erin@andrewkreps.com.
